Who this course is for:
- Sketchup Users who want to learn how to use models in Architectural Construction documents
I have 20 years experience working and studying in the architectural field, I have designed dog houses to multi-million dollar homes and commercial buildings. The last 5 years I have focused primarily on 3D modeling. My 3D models are used for design development, marketing, Investor presentations and submittals for plan approval. I have built over 1,000 3D models and I have found SketchUp to be the best tool for the job. I decided to create this course to share some of the methods that I have used and continue to use to quickly model my projects. I look forward to working and hearing back from students who take this course.
